An Interview with Griffin Stark
What inspired you to write this book, your first novel?
Steve Jobs once said that if you ask a creative person how they did something they will never be able to tell you. The inspiration just came to me one day out of the blue in September 2014 and I ran with it.
What did your research process for the various historical settings in the book look like?
I really liked the idea of including famous teenage girls throughout history that made a huge impact on the world in their time. I extensively researched every time-period that is portrayed in the book. Jack-the Ripper was never found because the Immortal Girls took good care of him.
What’s the significance of the “Sheepdog” in the book?
The Sheepdog story is as old as time. The Girls are the protectors of the innocent and those who cannot protect themselves. They are the ultimate Sheepdogs.
How did the girls’ characters change while you were writing the book?
When I started writing the book four years ago, there were originally seven girls. Unfortunately,
seven was too many characters to keep track of for leads. So, the number of Immortal Girls went down to five. I really like that number by the way. You will see it referenced a lot throughout the book. Also, when I started the book, the girls were very violent.
